At Roland Garros,

Iga Swiatek​ has taste.

Qualified this Thursday for her second Roland-Garros final after her walk in the semi-final (6-2, 6-1) against the Russian Kasatkina, the Pole told how she had prepared before the match.

Asked by Marion Bartoli on center court after the match, the world number 1 revealed that she listened to Led Zeppelin to motivate herself.

Before returning a little more extensively to the subject in a press conference.

“Many players listen to music before games.

Before the game, I listened to AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Guns N'Roses… It was pretty perfect for this situation.

I use music to occupy my mind and relax before a match.

It also helps me when I am looking for energy,” acknowledged the Pole.

No “Stairway to heaven” before the final

Given the demonstration in the semi-finals, we can say that the method worked perfectly.

All that remains is to put

Stairway to heaven fully

before her final on Saturday against the American Coco Gauff.

"I don't listen to that song," retorted the world number 1 to a colleague, laughing.

It doesn't matter, since Swiatek also likes AC/DC, we'll be satisfied with a good old

Highway to Hell

, quite prescient when we know that Swiatek has 34 wins in a row.

Good luck for Saturday Coco Gauff!
